I have slightly mixed feelings about this; modern designs are often superb and have lots of features and touches that would be impossible with the original technology, but this sometimes comes at the cost of their "play" value. The classic stuff were designed as toys, not as fragile collectors items...! There's a lot of truth in that. For the price you have to pay for some of the SOC line, they probably barely get touched at all if they even make it out of the box. (An interesting side note - Its much cheaper to buy the toy-like original GODMARS than it is to buy the updated SOC version.)When I was a mad collector of X Bomber stuff, (Owning the small, standard, DX, and Dengeki Gasshin) the prices were relatively steep, but there was always a price threshold where people would say - forget it!For instance, The Dengeki Gasshin will go on sell for between £500 - £1000 these days, but it's not really worth that amount as very few people interested in the Dai X (i.e. Star Fleet/X Bomber and Gokin fans) are going to spend that kind of money on it. It's not too rare either as I know of half a dozen places to get one, because they can never shift them at that price.So in that regard, to a toy company, the Dai X might not look like a viable option, but hands up anyone who would pay a realistic price for a new perfect version of the Dai X? Star Fleet, X Bomber, and SOC fans might surprise the toy companies with their interest.
